Emily Reitan is the VP of Strategy and Business Development for Allianz Life where she co-leads the investment team behind Allianz Life Ventures — the insurance company’s corporate venture arm based in Minneapolis.
How long have you worked with Allianz Life for?
I’ve been with Allianz Life for 13 years, starting in finance, and also worked with our CEO as Chief of Staff for a number of years. More recently, I have been in corporate business development and strategy, working on ways to expand what the business can look like 5-10 years from now. During that process, myself and a colleague formed the venture team that makes decisions around our venture investments.
